Featured Review

Current Employee - Customer Success Advocate

I have been working at Square full-time for less than a year

Pros

+Generous benefits, stock options and WFH stipends +Diverse workforce +Choice for 100% remote work or hybrid office/WFH +Supporting small business owners with their websites is rewarding... work +Well-structured day with breaks included throughout shift +Time flies really quickly during peak hours

Cons

-Won't get to participate in company activities as much since you'll be on the phones or emails -Training can have a high learning curve for the technologically challenged -Sometimes the business... owners are stressed out and not the most patient over the phones when they need support -Talking over the phone can be mentally draining

Advice to Management

Management is doing great so far. They're responsive over chat channels, give reviews out of training to ensure comfort with the position, ready to offer advice.
